PHI-NADO works in partnership with the following national organizations and institutions to protect and maintain the integrity of clean sport in the Philippines:

Philippine Sports Commission

The birth of the Philippine Sports Commission was championed in the 1987 Philippine Constitution declaring the importance of sports in forming a healthy and functioning citizenry. By the year 1990, massive developments in the international sporting world were already arising. In the country, it was the time to strengthen the national sports structure as President Corazon C. Aquino signed into law the creation of a new government sports agency with fortified and more relevant objectives.


On January 24, 1990, the Philippine Sports Commission came into being. PSC was created as the top government sports body by the virtue of Republic Act 6847 or “The Philippine Sports Commission Act”. Since its birth in 1990, it has grown into one of the country’s formidable institutions, ennobled by its salient mission of transforming the Filipino people into a healthy citizenry through various commendable sports development programs.

Department of Education

The Department of Education was established through the Education Decree of 1863 as the Superior Commission of Primary Instruction under a Chairman. The Education agency underwent many reorganization efforts in the 20th century in order to better define its purpose vis a vis the changing administrations and charters. The present-day Department of Education was eventually mandated through Republic Act 9155, otherwise known as the Governance of Basic Education act of 2001 which establishes the mandate of this agency.


The Department of Education (DepEd) formulates, implements, and coordinates policies, plans, programs, and projects in the areas of formal and non-formal basic education. It supervises all elementary and secondary education institutions, including alternative learning systems, both public and private; and provides for the establishment and maintenance of a complete, adequate, and integrated system of basic education relevant to the goals of national development.


The Department of Education integrates physical education and sports in the K to 12 physical education curriculum, with fitness and movement education as the core of its content. This includes values, knowledge, skills, and experiences in physical activity participation, with the curriculum recognizing the the view that fitness and healthy physical activity behaviors must take the family and other environmental settings into consideration.


The Bureau of Physical Education and School Sports of the Department of Education was established to promote the ideals of sports and physical fitness through elementary and secondary schools. The Bureau of Learner Support Services - School Sports Division (BLSS- SSD) was designed to develop and produce the DEPED sports manual which includes the Palarong Pambansa and other youth national sports games.
